As the ultra-right tries to spread its message of hate, Colin Thomas reminds us that we have been here before. This is how the Anti-Nazi League and Rock Against Racism resisted the National Front in Bristol in the 1970s and 80s – and won.

  1. would love to read this, as I’m writing an account (from anarchist point of view) of an incident mentioned in ex-NFer Chris Brown’s book ‘BOVVER’ set in Bristol 1970’s. In it Chris (who has since come to his senses) recounts being part of an NF mob who smashed up a gig by all girl punk band SLITS hospitalising what he describes as a black singer for the support band. Truth is gig that was smashed by his NF mob was SLITS supported by my mates band SPITFIRE BOYS. SB’s were Liverpool’s first punk band & with at least 2 openly gay members attracted the ire of the Nazis! (Paul Rutherford later Frankie Goes To Hollywood dancer was SB’s singer) The Scouser who got hospitalised was in fact SB’s roadie Mark Chibber beaten 1/2 dead because he was black!
    I’m living in Australia these days & so assume the postage for this pamphlet would be more than actual cost – still I’d love to read it – is it online? How much is it & how much for postage.
    Great site – keep up the great work.
